My friend requested a card for her favorite sister-in-law (actually, I think she is her only sister-in-law, but she loves her, none-the-less :D ) who is celebrating a wedding anniversary on November 2nd, which is Dia de los Muertos. They are passionate about the holiday, so Debbie (my friend) wanted a card to reflect their love of this joyous occasion and celebrate the love they have for each other. This awesome stamp by Bombshell Stamps was the perfect image to capture both of these themes.
I colored the images with Copic markers and added a touch of glitter to the diamond at the top of the image. No embossing on this one, which is a bummer, because you know how I like to double, triple, even quadruple emboss images. Also, no extraneous flowers and gems, it just didn't seem to need it. Trust me, I got it out 3 or 4 times after I finished it to see if I could add some shiny or frilly embellishments and I couldn't. It is what it is :D
The inside reads "I would rather live and love where death is king than have eternal life where love is not. - Robert G. Ingersoll". What a perfect sentiment :)
